Dr. Andrea Green
Assistant Professor of Religious StudiesDownload vCard
Dr. Andrea Green describes herself as a “religionist,” that is, she is a social scientist of comparative religions. Her interests lie especially in epistemology, or the philosophy of knowledge, psychobiology, the physical correlates of behavior, and religions/cultures of diverse peoples around the globe.
Green majored in psychobiology in college and, upon graduation, attended dental school before discovering her interests were more with concepts and theory rather than the practice of dentistry. She then attended Duke University, where she was awarded Master of Theology (Th.M.) and Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degrees.
She studied religion and, in particular, the social science of religion and practical theology at Emory University, where she took her doctorate (Ph.D.). She continues to teach seminary students in practical theology and the academic study of religion in both formal and informal settings.
